There are many way to react in terrorism type situations. People can react in fear, they can become angry, they can be overcome by grief, and they can shut down and quit. The tragedy that happened in Boston leaves me full of sorrow. I don't find myself angry at whoever set up this attack because I am too focused on the people who were affected in the explosions. I am sad that the victims of the explosions will not be remembered like the people who set up the explosions. The people responsible for this will have their names remembered but the victims will be an after thought in the eyes of the media and to those who watch it. I see people across our country in what appears to me in fake mourning. I'm sad that people my age are concerned about the likes they get on facebook and instagram and the re tweets and favorites they get from twitter when they post things like #PrayForBoston instead of actually praying for Boston and finding ways they can help. Every time things like the explosions or shootings happen people act upset and angry but they never act on the emotions they want to show. So in a way I guess I'm more upset of what will come in the next days, weeks, months, and years, because to forget about these things that happened is just as disturbing as the act itself.
